Fin (7692) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2013
Cask, gravity, Merton Winter Beer Festival Feb 2013 w/e of Friday 15th, Saturday 16th February 2013 We (me & Loz) tried this alongside Buxton American Rye the latter ran out the winner but this ran it a very close race. Pours gold with a playful sparkly, spritzy, bubbly white head. The aroma was superb, floral but with some soft summer fruit such as apricot and peach, fresh and alive. The taste was possibly a little more subtle than I expected but still wonderful, fruity with elements of tropical fruits combining with a sharp edge of citrus, not sure that I necessarily get grapefruit as per description but there is definately citrus of some undetermined description. Clean, crisp and leaves you wanting more, quality beer from Salopian. A9 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 4.0

imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Lamb & Flag, Oxford. Gold with white head. This is a rich, fruity beer, lots of crisp, biscuity malt overlaid with a really pleasant grapefruity hop, oranges and lemons lingering in the background. Full and very pleasant. I really enjoyed this one.
